Kakan is a trained artist and graduated in ceramics and glass in 2012 at Konstfack, where she is now an assistant professor since 2015. In her artistry, she pursues issues around gender, violence, class and sexuality and was involved in starting the feminist artist group "Den nya kvinnogruppen" which was formed as a backlash against the male art scene. She mainly works in ceramics but also with glass and video.

In addition to her artistry, she is a presenter, lecturer, author and DJ. In 2016, her autobiographical book Hela Kakan came out and in the same year her popular podcast Under the Skin was launched. Since 2008, Kakan has participated in several programs for both television and radio. Together with Julia Frej, she has hosted the talk show Kaka på Kaka, been a jury member in the entertainment program Talang and together with Olof Wretling has played in, among other things, the Christmas calendar and Bye Bye Sweden.
